Breakfast with chamois

The old road.
Woke up at 5:30 (local), had a quick breakfast, drove 30 min up to a mountain pass and started hiking.

In about 30 minutes lone walk I joined a family of chamois having breakfast. The telephoto equipment was finally put into outdoor use.
Can you count them?

They followed me as I proceeded to a nearby peak.

I got few blowing warnings to keep the distance from them. My excursion ended on a SOTA peak and two FM contacts, but I was not chasing SOTA points.

It was really nice to be part of (almost incontaminated) Nature.

Here is a link to the area of my excursion: L'Alta via dell'Assietta.
